I just started experimenting with XCB through Python. I followed the
explanations and full example at

There was 1 small edit I had to make, to get this to work:

The original full example has this line:

    conn.core.ChangeProperty(PropMode.Replace, window, xcb.XA_WM_NAME,
xcb.XA_STRING, 8, len(name), name)

which results in

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'XA_WM_NAME'

Changing it to the line below fixes the example:

    conn.core.ChangeProperty(PropMode.Replace, window, Atom.WM_NAME,
Atom.STRING, 8, len(name), name)

This is on Ubuntu 14.04, python 2.7.6, xpyb 1.3.1-1, libxcb 1.10-2

Kind regards,
